  1. Hi Caroline,
    Wow, what a wonderful list. You should add Bahasa Indonesia on your language to learn list because it not that hard to learn :).
    I like that you are following my blog, i’m looking forward to your post as well, especially backpacking in Europe :D.


      • Hi Caroline, when will you be at Hong Kong? because i’m thinking about travelling to HK, maybe around early June this year. I’m not sure enough.

        There are plenty of phrase,
        Apa kabar? (how do you do?)
        Selamat pagi, siang, malam (good morning, noon, afternoon)
        Terima kasih (thank you)

        Phrase for what occasion do you want to know? 😀 😀


      • I’m moving to Hong Kong in August and then I don’t know when I will leave! Hmm, too bad, I won’t be there in June to show you around! Will you be traveling just for fun?

        Oh, those are great phrases to learn, thank you! Terima kasih! It doesn’t seem to hard to learn 🙂


      • Yes, to have some fun, with my little nephew 🙂

        Sama – sama (you are welcome, informal for formal term just use ‘terimakasih kembali’ :))

        no, it would be so much easier because in basic conversation we don’t have grammar :), just structure.
